Construction of a new utility line in the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park will cause a temporary closure of the Cave Springs Road to Horse and Salt Creek canyons.

The road will be closed Mondays through Thursdays as crews bury a new water line.Concession operated four-wheel drive tours will be allowed access with advance notification, a park spokesman said. Otherwise, the road will be open for use on weekends.

Visitors are encouraged to call the park, 259-7164, for information before heading to Salt Creek.
